Harlem meets the Bronx
The Rucker kisses the home of hip-hop
Sassy bubbles blown
and Playful jabs… making them pop
licking the sweetness from sticky fingers tips
then tasting the residue on cotton candy flavored lips...
One night planning lifetimes...
You called me baby
and I called you king
We bring love to these dirty streets
We brought forever before the street lights came on
Evelyn champagne king
was the song that illustrated our eternity .
"Shame... Mama thinks it's only a game... But what you do to me is a SHAME!"
and who the fuck was going to tell us this wasn't love
we committed crimes as we jumped turnstiles
the staircase became our penthouse of dreams
and it all seemed like it would never end...
but as all love stories do
there was once... a you
... and a me
and a we...
Then the street lights came on... And we headed home and our 4ever faded with dusk...
Years later whenever I taste the flavor of cotton candy on my lips... I remember
You used to call me baby...
and I called you King...
… Praises to the horniness that innocence kisses.
"Love is in my heart
Tearing the rules apart
So, why should I be ashamed
Only love can be to blame
If we lose our love it's a Shame
Ooh, I wouldn't want to live with the pain
Gonna stay forever..."
SONG BY EVELYN CHAMPAGNE KING, "SHAME"
